We love food, sorry. “Bavarian evening at @TAMK

This time Jacqueline invited us to an event she was hosting with some other German girls at the Catering Studio. This time the girls didn’t prepared the dishes but another student from TAMK did. They had a menu on the wall and although I wanted to tried the “Schnitzel” I went with the salad “Kartoffelsalat” once more. We spend the evening talking about our plans for Christmas and when did we planned to go back to our countries.

Futhermore, we meet with some Maria and Jacqueline friends that we met on Oktoberfest and we learn how to play a German game called “Kniffel”. the point of the game was to collect the same numbers or a set of combination similar to the ones in Poker.

You could only roll the dice 3 times and you can keep the ones you thing are good enough to score a good combination.

  We also had the opportunity to see Jacky with her “Dirndl” on, this attire is mostly use in celebrations in Germany  or big gatherings like Oktoberfest.

Bavarian dinner at TAMK

Last Thursday, our EOTO group met at TAMK catering studio because there was a Bavarian Party.

Two members of our group, Tomi and Ivan, live in Bavaria, Germany, so it was a good opportunity to learn more about the culture of that region.

When I arrived, there were only German speakers in the room. They were from 3 different countries: Austria, Germany and Switzerland (one of them, Kasimir, another member of the group).

The room was decorated with ornaments with the flag of Bavaria. In the walls, there were posters of the food and drinkings menu.

While we waited for the food and the drinks, I talked with Kasimir about the typical costume of the place where he lives in Switzerland, and he showed me pictures of both man and woman costumes. In most of the pictures people had cows behind them. Kasimir explained me it was because people dress with them in the villages when the summer begins and the cows are lowered from the mountains to the villages and a party is celebrated.

He also told me about Heidi, a children’s anime and book of a child called Heidi, that lives in the Swiss Alps near the border with Austria. It was written by the Swiss writer Johanna Spyri. I told him that I knew her, because she is also famous in Spain, and I’ve read the book when I was a child.

After that, the food arrived. The main plate was an Austrian typical dish, called “Schnitzel with potato salad” (a very thin, breaded and pan fried cutlet made from veal, accompained with a potato salad). In Spain, we call that filet “escalope”.

We had beers to drink, and roasted almonds as an appetizer.
